Entwined Butterflies

Rachel’s beautiful card was created with our ENTWINED BUTTERFLIES stencil, the small butterfly stamp from our VI MINIS set, and a heartfelt sentiment from our BRAVE AND STRONG stamp set.

[Tutorial] The ‘Entwined Butterflies’ stencil really captures all the fluttering I can see from the window of all the colourful creatures in the garden. For this make I’ve teamed the stencil up with the ‘VI Minis #1’ stamp set as well as sentiment from the ‘Brave and Strong’ stamp set. 

To begin with I sprayed a piece of white card with ‘Saltwater Taffy’ and ‘Squeezed Lemonade’ distress spray stain. Next, I added the stencil and gently brushed ‘Kitsch Flamingo’ distress oxide through it. I then stamped the sentiment from the ‘Brave and Strong’ stamp set in Versafine Clair ‘Nocturne’ black ink into the bottom left hand corner of the card before edging the background with ‘Saltwater Taffy’ distress ink.

On a separate piece of card I stamped 3 of the butterfly images from the ‘Vi Minis #1’ stamp set in Versafine Clair ‘Nocturne’ black ink before embossing with Wow clear superfine embossing powder. These were then fussy cut out before being lightly brushed with ‘Salvaged Patina’ distress ink and stuck into position on top of the background using Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue. 

Finally, once all the elements were dry I mounted the background onto black card and a white card blank. A lovely and bright card with an encouraging greeting that can be used at any time of year I hope you agree? Rachel
